stylish specs in the 613: part ii

Last week I went shopping for new specs at Eyemaxx Optical Studio, a locally-owned Ottawa eyewear boutique on Elgin Street. As you folks may recall, I tried on oodles and oodles of frames and was pretty gobsmacked by the sheer amount of choice.

I mean, between gorgeous frames by Prada, SALT Optics, Tom Ford, Garrett Leight, Rayban, and Dick Moby, how was I to choose? But with the help of the stylish and experienced staff at Eyemaxx (shout-out to Kaytlyn and Nicole!!) we narrowed it down to my number one pick:

These feather-light beauties by Dior! I squealed with delight, hugged the Eyemaxx gals, and went out galavanting with Jamie from Hello Lovely Studio for a super fun photo shoot.

Whadda we think? Like 'em?

I'm in love!

Also I love coffee. Especially Ministry of Coffee. The precciiiooouusssss...

Since my new specs are a neutral matte navy, they'll pair perfectly with my many bright lippies:

I have a strong and complicated prescription (I'm in the -6.0 range with astigmatism and some other funny business), so I went for top-of-the line high-index Nikon lenses and they are crystal frigging clear.

No distortion, no glare, no halos, no nothing. LOVE.

Jamie and I popped over to Pot & Pantry for a photo op with their epic pineapple wall. My pal Robin runs the shop, drop by and she'll help with all your kitchen questions!

This is Robin:

Isn't her pineapple wall amazing?

And Look! I found a Nanaimo bar recipe in this all-Canadian cookbook!!!
